This module is installed as part of some CyberLink products, such as PowerDirector. It speeds up editing operations on these products by storing initial video analysis results for future use, so it does not need to be repeated, and so it can be cached and shared among users. Terminating this process directly may cause malfunctions in CyberLink products that use it; it would be better to look for an option to turn it off within the parent program.http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/richvideo.exe.html 

If you want a detailed security rating about your RichVideo.exe (and all other running background processes) read the following user opinions, and download the free trial version of Security Task Manager.

Note: Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk. If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection! Check it out!

It's part of PowerDVD 7 (the new release). It is not crucial to PowerDVD's operation. If you wish to remove it, go to services.msc and disable "Cyberlink RichVideo Service"  See also: Link   Nathan

It slows my computer to a stop, when I have used power Producer to edit and burn my J.V.C camera`s movies once downloaded to my PC. I have been leaving "Task manager" on so I can delete it when it starts to "flash". It reappears up to 4 times, in task manager and is a slippery thing in that it appears in any order on the list. I close the application until it disappears. My videos then can carry on sorting themselves out into sequence and the the burning follows in due coarse. If I dont termanate "RichVideo" my computer comes to a stop and It has to be shut down to regain control.   Noel Bourke

From Cyberlink's website FAQ: "What is Cyberlink Rich Video (CLRV) and how do I use it? CLRV can save an enormous amount of production time by reusing video file information created by MagicCut or Scene Detection functions. PowerDirector stores the information within the files, ensuring that the next time these features are used on the same files, the speed of production is dramatically improved. You can check CyberLink's rich media technology by accessing "Preferences". "  See also: Link   Random
